​Nemanja Matic embracing the pressure of playing for Manchester United

Manchester United’s summer acquisition Nemanja Matic is embracing the pressure of playing for a club of the stature of United.

The 29-year-old produced an almost-perfect performance in the middle of the pitch as the Red Devils began their season with a 4-0 win over West Ham on Sunday.

He said: “We played good football, and I think our supporters enjoyed it as well. It’s good to start well with three points, the season is long but we have to collect a lot of points and we’ve had a good start.

“It was great [to play at Old Trafford], when you wear that [United] shirt you feel some kind of pressure because this is a big club, but that’s why we are here.”
